Keeyen Martin’s “Dive N2 Luv” breathes new life into the traditional Pop/R&B Ballad
ATLANTA, GA–(February 11, 2014) Singer/Songwriter Keeyen Martin announced today the release of his new single, “Dive N2 Luv” which is available now for download via iTunes and other online music retailers. This is an original song written by Martin and is an ode to young love.
Martin collaborated with producer Marz of the production team Signature to create a record that would breathe new life into the standard Pop/R&B ballads currently heard in heavy rotation. Martin wanted something different and catchy for his listeners. “Dive N2 Luv” tells the story of falling in love and all the magic a young love affair holds; Martin uses his smooth vocals to bring a fresh take on a traditional ballad while keeping elements of an old school sound.
“I kept hearing big 808s, snaps, keys and more to help bring this record to life; and that is exactly what happened,” says Martin. “The production I heard in my head was birthed by Marz creating a marriage of lyrics, melody and instrumentation. I feel as though this record is a sound yet to be heard, a KFeenix sound.”
